I love your jasmine vines! Jasmine is my favorite - I have several diff. kinds, but I don't have the confederate vine yet. Have you found that it is a fast grower? I am looking for something to cover my chain link fence as quickly as possible - and I could use any excuse to buy another kind of jasmine :)

This is about two years of growth. It climbed to the top the first year and this year it it more filled out. We love it.

I have never tried to root jasmine. If there is someone with more experience rooting jasmine we need your input.

If you want to try it you can cut the stem about 1/2 inch below a leaf junction and cut off the leaf there. Cut about a 8 in piece of vine with a few leaves on it. Dip the bottom of the cut end in rooting hormone and plant in fine grained potting soil and water it in. I like using a gallon pot because it gives the roots room to develope and the cutting can get some size on it before I set it out in the yard. Keep it in a filtered sunlight cool area for two or more weeks until you see new growth appearing. Then you can gradually move it out to get more sun and grow to a planting size.

I have talked to people who like rooting vines in water but I haven`t tried a lot of things this way.

Dawn, re;rooting. I have rooted cuttings in a "bottomless box" oustide with a wire grid cover holding clear plastic, tucked under the box - all in the shade. I used Rootone. Easier though has been to dig up rooted stems (luckily, I am not too tidy so there are pieces of the vine - I have the cv "Madison" - lying around). I'm sure you could do the 'wounding' technique and weighting the stem with a rock to encourage this rooting. Good luck. It's fabulous.
